That is such a beautiful sight. Just wondering when this image was taken, there has been some disturbing news of a infection taking a heavy toll on flamingoes in Africa. We here in Mumbai are awaiting our flamingo population to arrive & they see to be a couple of weeks late.

Impressive shot of these huge numbers of Flamingoes! I wonder how their presence affects the quality of the water! Excellent record of this gathering and beautiful colours.

Wonderful picture. I can imagine, that seeing flamingos moving and hearing them was even more amaizing.
I like the colours of your photo and the composition.

Hi Sitthivet, a few minutes ago I reviewed a shot from eserrano where I saw the largest flock of birds I had ever seen. Now you present this. This has now got to be the largest flock I have seen on the ground. This is a fantastic shot. I will suggest to you as I did to him, you should post this as a large post. It would be awesome.

Wow, that's a couple of birds you got there. Did you perhaps count them, and if not, why not?
This is a very interesting record of these birds congregating in great numbers. I assume it is a combination of greater and lesser flamingos by the looks of all the small white dots between the pink dots. I like your composition with the snaking effect of the shoreline riddled with the birds. Three very distinct colours adorn the photo with the blue water to the right, the pink band of flamingos, and the earthy brown of the shoreline.
Well captured and TFS.

What an amzing picture! I cannot believe how many flamingos are on this beach. Sad to read about the drying out of the lake.Everywhere problems in nature. We have to react.
